Taco Ring

Most of you have seen Taco Rings at Pampered Chef parties. I love these, but I add a few more things to ours.

Here is the link to the basic Taco Ring and keep reading for my adjustments.

I brown the meat with onions, green chilies, chopped banana peppers, one can of light red kidney beans, and one taco seasonings mix. Once that is done, I add another taco seasonings mix to it.

Then assemble the croissant ring as in the above link, add the meat mixture, and cheese. Wrap the croissants, bake, and then add what toppings you want to the middle or just put on the top of your individual slice. Once we put this on our plates, we add more meat, cheese, salsa and lettuce to the top.

Sugar Cookies

Philadelphia Sugar Cookie (Kraft recipe)

1 package cream cheese (8 oz)
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 sugar (I use 1 cup)
1/4 tsp vanilla (I used 1 tsp pure vanilla)
2 1/2 cups flour
Pinch of salt

Refrigerate for a couple of hours, though best if over night.

Cut out, and decorate (colored sugar). Bake 350 until lightly brown.

These have a great taste. I have found if you want to bake that day, then you might plan on just making round cookies as when they bake, they puff up and do not keep their shape. These cookies come out soft but crispy at the same time. Perfect!

Pumpkin Pie

3 tablespoon cream cheese (I like whipped)
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
½ cup light brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 frozen pie crust
Mix ingredients, and then pour into pie crust. Bake 350 for 1 hour. SUPER EASY!

I like, after it cools, to put mine in the refrigerator to firm up. You do not have to do this though.

Sweet Onion, Pepper Chicken Fettuccine

Here is my favorite Pasta dish. This is usually a crowd favorite.


Sweet Onion, Pepper Chicken Fettuccine
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 onion, sliced
3 green peppers or any peppers you like sliced
1 small tomato or half of a medium one chopped
About 1 lb of chicken
1 tablespoon of ground Thyme
2 teaspoons of powder garlic
½ cup of chicken stock or broth
2 tablespoons of honey
half a pack of Fettuccine noodles 12 oz
Shredded Parmesan cheese for topping
Salt and black pepper to taste
Optional ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper or ¼ of a fresh cayenne pepper, add more if you really like it spicy!
Throw on an apron, and let’s cook!
Cook pasta in boiling water.
Add two tablespoons of olive oil to a hot skillet, then add onion, peppers and tomatoes. Add ½ tablespoon of Thyme, 1 teaspoons of garlic, 1 tablespoon of honey and a shake of salt and black pepper to onions, peppers and tomatoes. Cook until done.
Remove onions, peppers and tomatoes. Add rest of olive oil (you may have to add more for the chicken to not stick to skillet, use your judgment). Add cut-up chicken (or cut it up once cooked, which is what I do), add ½ tablespoon of thyme, 1 teaspoon of garlic, and 1 tablespoon of honey. If you are using cayenne pepper, use it now. Once chicken is cooked, put onions, peppers and tomatoes in skillet with chicken. Cook for 3 minutes. Add chicken stock. Continue to cook for about 10 minutes (or until chicken stock is cooked down). Taste and add salt and pepper if needed and additional ingredients such as garlic, thyme and honey to your taste preference. Mix into pasta. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese when served.

Since we love onions and peppers, we normally just add and add them to this dish! Banana peppers taste great in this dish too. You cannot go wrong. Just adjust ingredients to your taste.

Sausage Rolls

Brown Jimmy Dean Original sausage then add:
¼ cup fresh chives
½ of a small chopped onion
2 jalapenos
2 bell peppers
1 cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons of garlic powder
Take off of the stove, and then add to a bowl the mixture. Add these to the sausage mixture:
1 small container of cream cheese
1 small container of sour cream
3 cups cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon Cajan seasonings
½ cup green onions
Just a dash of salt and pepper
Refrigerate for one hour or until one hour until you serve guests
Use pop can bread or pop can croissants , already cooked dinner rolls or use sausage mixture as a dip.
If using pop can bread (I use Pillsbury Italian), just cut off a piece, add some mixture, and then cook according to directions on the can. For dinner rolls (such as the kind in a bakery), cut off the tops of the bread, take a knife and hollow out the roll, add mixture and bake until tops are brown.

This is a very forgiving recipe. If you do not have sour cream, or certain peppers, you can omit, and it is still delicious. Just make sure you have some kind of hot peppers, cream cheese and cheese for the mixture, and you are all set.

Pizza sauce from fresh vine ripe tomatoes

This is one of those make as much as you need recipes with hardly any measuring. You will need:
Vine ripe tomatoes (I used three semi-small ones)
Olive oil (about 3 tablespoons)
garlic (however much you like)
Italian seasonings (few shakes)
Basil (one good shake)
Oregano (one good shake)
Parmesan/Romano cheese (sprinkle type of cheese)
Onion (only about a tablespoon, this is more for flavor)
Sea salt/or regular salt (two good shakes)
Italian bread pop-up cans or any dough you like

Chop tomatoes very fine, add olive oil to pan. Cook for about 5 minutes, add garlic, onion, seasonings, salt and cheese. Cook for 10 minutes. Mash with a potato masher or food processor.

Cook the dough half way. Add a little garlic,
Italian seasonings and sprinkle cheese to dough before half cooking, do not let get brown. You are really just looking for the dough to rise in the oven and get a little hard on top. Then add your favorite toppings and cook until bottom is brown.

This pizza is covered with Mozzarella cheese, grated Parmesan cheese (not sprinkle kind), mushrooms, green peppers and pineapple. Again this is a normally eggfree recipe, but worth sharing. This is also a good sauce for diabetes since there is no sugar added. Enjoy!
